Ranbir Kapoor has been busy with the promotions of his upcoming film, Shamshera. In one of the interviews, Ranbir spoke about his career in Bollywood. He talked about his debut film Saawariya to his upcoming release, Shamshera. While doing so, Ranbir spoke about Deepika Padukone's performance in Tamasha and called her a veteran. Tamasha came out in 2015 and went on to garner appreciation from critics and audiences alike. In the past, Ranbir and Deepika did quite a few films together.
In an interview with Brut India, Ranbir Kapoor spoke about Deepika Padukone and said, "I don't think I have ever been so surprised by an actor's growth. Because I know Deepika so closely, I was so impressed. By the time we reached Tamasha, she was a veteran, you know, and she was surprising me with each shot, and everything she was doing. There are certain scenes that tilt towards an actor's character, and the scene really had my character arch because he was churning, he was going through something. But I think the way Deepika performed it, what Deepika brought to the table, she made it come alive because you really felt pain. And because of that, it was such a reactive scene. What I was doing, she was reacting, what she was doing, I was reacting.”
